Why Use a Bill of Sale Form in Missouri?

A Bill of Sale in Missouri refers to a legal document which allows a Seller to transfer the ownership of an asset to a Buyer, in exchange for money or in trade for another item. Also called a BOS, is used when a Seller wishes to gift someone an item.

The Bill of Sale contains information about the Buyer and Seller, the date of the transaction, description of item sold, purchase price or trade value, and a Seller’s Disclosure that explains whether the item sold has defects or not, so that the Buyer understands the condition of the item they are buying. Both Buyer and Seller should keep a signed copy of the Bill of Sale to serve as a record of purchase and payment.

Protection for Buyer and Seller

A Bill of Sale is a legally binding record of the transaction that protects the Seller and Buyer from future issues that may arise including mistakes, fraud and theft. Without a Bill of Sale, it can be hard to prove that an item was paid for and received, especially with cash transactions, or to establish the date of the transfer of ownership of the asset. A BOS is especially important, should anything go wrong with the item that the Seller knew about, but did not inform the Buyer. A BOS is also used for tax purposes.

Motor Vehicle Bill of Sale in Missouri

Whether you’re buying a used car from within the state of Missouri or out of state, you will need to create and complete a Missouri BOS for Motor Vehicles, also known as a DMV Bill of Sale, in order to register the vehicle. (Note that a Bill of Sale is not a car title or car registration, and does not replace a title transfer.) The information contained in the BOS includes:

    • Names, addresses and Drivers’ License or State I.D. numbers of Seller and Buyer

    • Detailed description of vehicle – year, make, model, color and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

    • The vehicle’s odometer reading. It is a crime in the state of Missouri to lie about an odometer reading and to turn back the odometer. (You will also need to fill out Missouri State Form 3019 Odometer Disclosure Form)

    • Purchase price and/or trade item/value

    • Seller’s Disclosure—does the item sold have any defects? Are there any warranties or is the item sold “as is” condition?

    • Date item is paid for and date of the transfer of ownership responsibility for the item

Bill of Sale for Boats in Missouri

To buy or sell a boat in the state of Missouri, you need a Bill of Sale specific to boats. The BOS for boats is similar to a DMV BOS, but includes a description of the boat, the Hull ID, make, model, style, color, and length.

    • For the motor, put down the year, make, model, and the horsepower

    • For the trailer, indicate the color, length, make, model, or size

    • You also have to fill out Missouri Sate Form DOR-93 Application for Missouri Boat/Vessel or an Outboard Motor Title and Registration
